The Sonnet of Valeria Botello

Deep voices from the earth call out her name Growling and rumbling, corpses from graves Summoned by the devil, she cannot tame The monster within, locked away in caves Her name is a folk tale, forbidden lore Her lips are untouched, as evil deprives Her voice is an omen, harbinger roar Her touch, a death sentence, no one survives Demons from the depths of hell, here to take Wicked deals made long ago, ink still wet Always on the run, death left in the wake No one understands, the curse that’s been set Beauty on the surface, pain underneath The girl who runs from monsters with big teeth Visit my blog to read the rest of my Free Supernatural Poem Novel:

I like the title very much. AC. a beautiful and deep sonnet. I've read many sonnets on this site. But this one tops them all. I truly mean what I just said. I like the story. Poor Valeria B, reminds me of my granddaughter. Always thinking a monster's chasing her... Enjoyed. LINDA
